Thread: Claw machine?

  1. #1

    Default Claw machine?

    I was just curious, would it be considered stealing if you won multiple prizes from a single claw machine? I guess it wouldn't considering you paid to play it, but is there actually a limit? Like, say you were at Wal-Mart and you played 5 times and won every time would it be considered stealing? Heck, why stop at 5 right, you are on a hot streak and win 15 times, and you walk out with 15 different prizes. Sorry if this seems kind of stupid to ask, but I was just curious. (Let's just say that I have a bit of an obsession with these, and I am pretty good at them.)

    I would be in jail a loooooooooooooong time ago if I won several prizes from the machine when I was 13.

    No, it's not considered stealing.

    However, you couldn't really win at the claw game multiple times in a row anyway, due to the way they are set up. They are made to give a certain amount of losses before it gives a win. The amount varies depending on how it's set up by the place that owns it.

    You can actually spy on the machine and wait for players to use it. Keep track of all the losses and wins, and you will find a pattern. You can then only play the game when it's suppose to give you a win.

    Almost all prize giving machines work in this manner.

    I know that some are set up to payout. I found a YouTube channel of a couple of guys who go around just playing them and they win like crazy. Thank you both for clearing it up.

    It's funny, but the same thing applies if you play poker at the casinos and keep winning. They'll throw you out for "card counting". My feeling is, so what if you count cards. That just means you're smart. But the casinos don't want smart people gambling, just the dumb ones who will keep losing their money. Somehow, that doesn't seem right to me. If the casino can't take the heat, they should get out of the kitchen, or maybe they should just be a restaurant.

    Counting cards is cheating. That is why they throw you out if you are caught doing it.

    You can cheat at just about anything though.

    I'm reasonably sure that counting cards and what you are describing are completely different. There is no legal limit to how many times you can win at the claw machine. Pinky swear. If you win a bunch of toys, all that's happened is you've won a bunch of toys. The FBI won't be knocking on your door demanding you return your plushies. You pay money for that chance, you "paid" to play. No stealing has happened.
